Setting The Record Straight

Written for:  Sunday Whirl, Wordle #542

Words:  threshold, vinyl, shell, no, hidden, spin, fiddle,
        turtle, amidst, neck, design, noise

As a turtle, I am seen
by some spinners of
tales, as never
sticking my neck out,
staying hidden under
my shell.  Well no,
that is simply
not true.  I was
designed this way,
just as vinyl was
for records . . .
once.  Amidst a
fine fiddle of 
fish folk, I am
content to exist
without a great
deal of noise.  If
you find yourself
on the threshold
of my home, do not
think I am being
aloof, should my
face be tucked away.
